A ha!

As long as the Holy See realizes, I'm not so afraid it will stick its foot in its mouth on the condom issue. From Catholic News Service:

The sources said there were strong arguments for allowing married couples in which one spouse is infected with HIV, which causes AIDS, to use condoms as a disease-preventing measure, when it overrides any contraceptive intent.

On the other hand, the sources said, the Vatican is hesitant to make any move that would be seen as an endorsement of condoms as a method of disease prevention, because condoms do not offer 100 percent protection from AIDS and could encourage sexual promiscuity.

Also, from Catholic World News: World Catholic population at 1.098 billion (that's 1,098,000,000 or around 1/6 of the world's population).

Also, I received my copy of the Compendium last Friday after ordering it back in January.
